A limited Edition of only 216 bottles.
With more than three centuries of experience, Berry Bros. & Rudd, owner of The Glenrothes, has long-standing relationships with some of the world’s leading wine producers; it seemed only natural to draw on these to create this truly remarkable range of whiskies – The Glenrothes Wine Merchant’s Collection.
Having spent more than two decades in American oak, the Wine Merchant’s Collection whiskies have then been “finished” by introducing them into casks which formerly held some of the world’s most coveted wines.
This particular whisky was distilled in 1992, and matured until 2014 in Hogshead casks. Having rested in these casks, the whisky was then introduced it into a hogshead Port cask from Graham’s®, one of the best-known Port producers, to add an extra layer of complexity to the spirit.
Graham’s® has its origins in Scotland in the early 1800s, where it was founded by Glaswegian brothers William and John Graham; today it is owned by the renowned Symington family. Across all its styles of Port, Graham's® extraordinary vintage wines are the epitome of richness, concentration and often sublime sweetness with incredible ageing potential.
